About the property

Private 2 bedroom 1 bath with Beautiful Landscaping outdoor living!

Pet's may be considered with an additional fee- please ask. Thank you for considering the Emerald Bungalow!

Welcome to our cozy oasis! Our home is a stand alone single family residence on a private lot with beautiful gardens that invite birds to linger and your body and mind to relax!

Located on the South end of Bainbridge Island off of Lynwood Center Road, this is a 950 square foot private custom home on a professionally landscaped and private lot with a generous front porch and porch swing. On bus line and in a safe and quiet neighborhood. ( We are on a quiet street NOT right on Lynwood Center Road which is a busy road but are nearby- from the map it looks like we are right on Lynwood Center)

There are 2 bedrooms- the master suite features a super comfy king size bed and 1 queen bed in the second bedroom. Both beds have high end bedding and down comforters in duvets.

Spacious kitchen with everything you will need with stainless steel appliances. Outdoor barbecue, fire pit and outdoor eating areas too!

Bathroom features a clawfoot tub/shower.

All organic bath amenities are provided. Shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hand wash and lotion.

Washer and Dryer as well!

Walk within 10 minutes to the desirable Lynwood Center area with cafes, restaurants, grocery, bakery and a movie theater or just a quick drive to get into downtown Bainbridge. 5 minute drive to Fort Ward State Park (great kayaking) and Gazzam Lake (hiking) for outdoor adventures and just 1 minute from Crystal Springs Beach.

Just 12 minutes to the Clearwater Casino and Resort.

Ask me about massage, spa and restaurant recommendations, since I have lived in the area since 1986, I have lots of local insiders tips!

I am also happy to give you a ride to our vacation rental if you are coming without a car during the daytime hours.

We look forward to talking to you!

About Heather Jaynes

Long time locals since 1985 and manager of the Eagle Harbor Inn since 2004 and in the hospitality business since 2002. I know a lot about keeping guests happy and comfortable! I love to share information about things to do on Bainbridge so please ask!

Currently our family lives on Bainbridge. We also own the local health food store, WILLOWTREE Market. We are busy raising our youngest who is now in high school and helping out with our two adorable grandsons.

Heather Jaynes purchased this bungalow in 2012

Why Heather Jaynes chose Bainbridge Island

We bought this property because of how special it felt. We knew it was a gem when we first saw it and we have loved working the garden and creating an oasis of greenery. It's super convenient to getting into the downtown area and really close to Lynwood Center and all that has to offer.

What makes this bungalow unique

The front porch is fabulous year round and truly a great place to hang out to watch the birds. This house is a sanctuary to us and feels very private but is still within minutes of everything you would ever want to hiking, kayaking, shopping, running, biking etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I went to Bainbridge and visited a friend and stayed in this really cute house, its functional, relaxing, really organized, clean, close to downtown, and they even left a bottle of wine for us which we find really sweet! If your planning to go to Bainbridge and looking for a place to stay this house is highly recommended for everyone!

Absolutely Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! The house is adorable and had everything we could need. Would definitely stay here again! Just a suggestion: possibly add instructions for the faucet handle on the tub, had a bit of difficulty initially figuring out how to get it to the upper shower head. But it was great once we figured it out.

Loved the quiet bungalow!

  • 4 of 5

The bungalow was adorable, perfect for my girls and I. Very clean and several nice surprises. I did had trouble accessing the arrival directions, but I was able to get everything straightened out. Enjoyed every minute.

We loved our stay in the cottage. It was charming. The gardens need a good pruning but everything else was perfect - location, size and coziness . Particularly loved the porch.

Owner's Response: Thanks William and we are glad you had a great time! Tommy was happy to meet you at Willowtree Market! Thanks for leaving the house in such great shape- we really appreciate it. With regard to the garden, We actually LOVE the overgrown "cottage garden" luciousness - we feel like it gives the place a real sense of privacy even though there are neighbors close by:) Hope to see you another time!

A lovely place to stay. Quaint, quiet and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

This was a perfect location for what we were trying accomplish during our visit. A very cute cottage close to shops in Lynwood Center. The only down side there was NO cell service as the house is located in a cell dead spot on the island. We were able to rely on phone service via wifi. However, it could have been a problem as we needed service for our business. But, overall a very pleasent stay.

Owner's Response: Hi Brian! Thanks for your nice review and I'm glad you had a great time. I'm also glad my directions on how to use wifi for cell calls was found. Yes, the south end (and mid parts) of the island (island living!) is pretty much a deadzone for cell use but it sounded like the wifi option worked well as an alternative and I'm glad to hear that! Hope to see you another time! All the best, Heather

Located only 35 minutes via ferry (car and walk on) from Downtown Seattle, Bainbridge Island is a great alternative for lodging for an amazing Northwest experience. Our vacation rental is only 8 minutes from downtown Bainbridge but near Historic Lynwood Center and the Manor House, a popular place for weddings. Nearby to public beach access, state parks, The Bloedel Reserve, wineries, restaurants, theaters etc.
